Thanks, Paul. You correctly point out the difference between theoretical one-size-fits-all philosophies and how humans act in the real world. People no more operate the way libertarian theorists imagine than they do the way communist theorists imagine. Both systems are attempts to pretend that economic systems can or will operate in line with the proponents’ philosophy about what is right, fair and moral, and, of course, they don’t. — David Grace
